This is a little off the beaten path, but due to still being under the weather and waiting on some interviews to come together, I thought I'd put the question to my wise, wise readership. I've never been a race scanner guy, preferring just to watch the on-track action unfold before me. I've listened in on scanners before, sure, but have never picked up one of my own. But I've grown interested in them enough to want to purchase one this winter. I don't want to break the bank, but would like a nice, sturdy set that will hold up well over the INDYCAR season Basically, I'd love to hear your recommendations as to what model or brand to check out, what features I might want, etc.
The thought crossed my mind that other fans might have the same question, so please, any useful hints or recommendations you might have, please share them in the comments below. Thanks!
